Hi,
The rulebook states:
In all Memoir '44 Pacific Theater scenarios, the US Marines are Gung-Ho!
However for scenario:
51 - [GUADALCANAL] SLOPES OF MOUNT AUSTEN - JANUARY 10-22, 1943
http://www.daysofwonder.com/memoir44/editor/view/?id=1413
it is not stated:
US Marine Corps Command rules are in effect (see p. 7).
Is it an omission?

Does it mean we always use the Gung-Ho (and Japanese rules for that matter) rules for pacific theater scenarios?

That is because the units fighting in that battle were a mixture of US Army troops and Marines. Hence, no specific Marine rules.

It is a nod to the historical reality of the battle.
